Verify Database User Account Requirements

Verify Database User Account Requirements

Perform the following tasks for the domain configuration repository database:
  • Set the OPEN_CURSORS parameter to 4000 or higher.
  • Set permissions on the view
    $parameter
    in the Oracle database.
  • Set the privileges to run
    show parameter open_cursors
    in the Oracle database.
    When you run the pre-installation (i10Pi) system check tool, i10Pi runs the command against the database to identify the OPEN_CURSORS parameter with the domain database user credentials.
    You can run the following query to determine the open cursors setting for the domain database user account:
    SELECT VALUE OPEN_CURSORS FROM V$PARAMETER WHERE UPPER(NAME)=UPPER('OPEN_CURSORS')
  • Set the DynamicSections parameter to 3000 or higher in the IBM DB2 database.
    The default value for DynamicSections is too low for the Informatica repositories. Informatica requires a larger DB2 package than the default. When you set up the DB2 database for the domain configuration repository or a Model repository, you must set the DynamicSections parameter to at least 3000. If the DynamicSections parameter is set to a lower number, you can encounter problems when you install or run Informatica services.
